Wow, that's a steal. Watch the quality though. I have 1 LFS
in my area that sorts the LR
by quality; $4/lb for low, $7 for mid, and $10 for high. There is definitely a difference because I bought some of each and the low quality was not as porous and it has taken a long time for the Coraline algae to grow on it. Also, the more expensive rock had a ton of tiny polyp creatures all over it and the Coraline grew like crazy on it. I'd say overall it's just more alive and mature rock with a lot of holes in it and no aptasia or harmful creatures.
